The following camp directory lists some of the summer camps for K-12 students in engineering throughout the United States and Canada that are and were previously offered. The directory lists camps that have been hosted by Universities and research centers in the past. Please note that all camps may not be offered every year and that new camps and programs are currently being added. Old or unsuccessful programs are always being eliminated or modified. A substantial number of programs specifically target minorities, women, and other groups traditionally underrepresented in the sciences. The programs offered change frequently, and this database is not comprehensive. This is only meant to be a guide to aid your search for engineering education preparation tools. Many of the programs offer scholarships and may have application deadlines as early as January. If you are interested in a program, please email, call or write the organization listed for an application and the most current information available.

Attending an event for admitted students can help you make a final college choice – even if you’ve already visited campus.
Although admitted student days are often confused with prospective student days, these events are a distinct entity unto themselves. As their name implies, admitted student days are open only to students who have already been accepted to a particular college or university.
These are different from events aimed at prospective students, which are open to anyone who would like to attend. Admitted student days share several similarities with their prospective-student-focused counterparts, but as they are specifically designed for students with offers of admission, they can help families gauge what life on a given campus is like.

A school's standing in the Best Colleges rankings can be affected if its entering students don't all submit test scores.The methodology for the U.S. News Best Colleges rankings has long used entering students' test scores as one way of measuring how schools compare in terms of their students' academic prowess.
This reflects the reality that a substantial majority of U.S. colleges and universities accept the ACT orSAT as an indicator of academic quality and require the scores for admissions decisions.
However, some four-year U.S. colleges are test-optional, meaning they do not require first-time, first-year, degree-seeking applicants to submit ACT or SAT scores for the purpose of admissions – the choice is left up to prospective students. There are other schools that do not use ACT or SAT scores in their admissions process at all.
